Bruins beat Maple Leafs to force Game 7
Brad Marchand had two goals and an assist as the Boston Bruins beat the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-2 on Sunday, forcing a Game 7 in their firstround playoff series.
Torey Krug and Jake DeBrusk also scored, and David Pastrnak had two assists to help Boston avoid elimination. Tuukka Rask stopped 22 shots. The Bruins will host the deciding game on Tuesday night.
Morgan Rielly and Auston Matthews scored for Toronto in a series in which neither team has managed back-to-back victories and each has won twice on the road. Frederik Andersen finished with 37 saves for the Leafs.
The Maple Leafs, who lost to the Bruins in seven games in both 2013 and last spring, have not advanced to the second round of the playoffs since 2004.
Capitals: Washington winger T.J. Oshie is expected to miss the rest of the playoffs after undergoing surgery to repair a broken right clavicle.
Oshie was injured late in Game 4 on Thursday at the Carolina Hurricanes on a hit from behind from Warren Foegele. Oshie went shoulder-first into the boards, and Foegele was given a two-minute minor penalty for boarding.
